* Genestealers are a weird one. Their genetics are predictable in how a bloodline works and the abilities that are passed down. First you have a genestealer infect its target. This new host becomes part of the group mind of the genestealers and becomes compelled to mate. The host looks normal, but the offspring will be bald and have slight bit of carapace and more than human speed and strength. This offspring later mates with other half-breeds to produce a full-blooded genestealer complete with 4 razor sharp claws and the ability to infect new hosts.

* ''TabletopGame/{{WarhammerFantasy}}, if you have a chaos-tainted parent then there's a good chance you'll be a disgusting mutant too. One reason why the Old World has so many Beastmen is that some of the mutant offspring who were left to die from exposure, were found by Beastmen and could breed true.

* In ''Videogame/{{Tekken}}, the maternal part of the Mishima bloodline gives Kazuya and Jin their Devil gene abilities. From Heihachi Mishima, every one of his descendants get at least a measure of his superhuman strength and endurance, including his half-Swedish son Lars.

* The ComicBook/{{X-Men}} had mixed up examples of 1 and 2; while Jean Grey (psionics) and ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} (EyeBeams) gave birth to two (or three, depending on how you count) of the most powerful psychics in existence, {{Magneto}} (with powers of magnetism) fathered a [[SuperSpeed speedster]], [[WindsOfDestinyChange a probability manipulator]] and (via {{Retcon}}) a magnetism user like him. ** At least one version of [[ScarletWitch Wanda]]'s origin had it that her "natural" mutant ability was some form of energy manipulation, like her father, but she "attuned" to the magical energies around Wundagore Mountain, resulting in her "Chaos Magic". (This was before [[RetCon Dr Strange said there was no such thing as Chaos Magic]] and [[{{Retcon}} then denied that he would ever make such a claim, OF COURSE Chaos Magic is real]]).

* In the case of TheSavageDragon, the main character's son Malcolm directly inherited full-power versions of both parents' powers, which isn't so surprising if you know that Dragon's powers [[spoiler:run in his family's dynasty]]. His mother's electrical powers were given to her later in life, so they must have caused genetic changes, thanks to [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] villain [[CaptainErsatz Doctor Nirvana's]] experiment.

* ''Film/SkyHigh'' goes with the fourth option ''twice''. After spending a long while thinking he would never develop powers, the main character inherits his father's SuperStrength and his mother's {{Flight}} powers separately (both were DieOrFly situations, the second a SuicidalGotcha using flight). The bus driver, and only other person on record to have super parents and not get powers, just exposed himself to toxic waste and grows 50 feet tall on demand. Nurse Spex also states that sometimes powers just aren't passed on at all.

*** Not all; Bruce Banner's mentor, Professor Gregory Crawford, who discovered said genetic trigger while examining Bruce's blood, found a way to copy it through genetic manipulation, which he used to turn himself into the Gamma mutate Ravage. It's also suggested that the RedHulk and Red She-Hulk didn't have the genetic marker themselves, and were only created and stabilized after significant genetic modification.

* In ''RanmaOneHalf'', the Musk Dynasty bore offspring through wild, powerful animals that had been thrown into the Spring of Drowned Girl, thus turning them into women. Their children would then inherit traits exhibited by, or closely related to, their mothers' natural form. Hence, Mint's superhuman scent, hearing, and speed (born from a wolf); Lime's grotesquely overpowered physical strength (born from a tiger); and Herb's ability to fly and discharge [[BattleAura his ki]] in devastating streams (born from a dragon). One episode of the anime hinted that children of a cursed parent will inherit that parent's curse--but that episode was all one of Ranma's nightmares, so it's not canon.
